Media Set “busy” and won’t unlock

Recommended Posts

Hello, I’m looking for some advice on the following scenario please.

A script (“Main Backup A”) was running, backing up to “Media Set A”. At some point it must have stopped. I can see from the backup disk in the finder that it is full.
• The Main Backup A activity has disappeared from the Activities list
• Media Set A is “busy” and cannot be unlocked
• Past Backups is now showing “0” backups
• No activities are currently running
(Screenshot attached)
I have tried restarting the Retrospect Engine in System Preferences.
I’m using Mac OS X 10.9.5, Retrospect v13.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I would try forgetting and then re-adding Media Set A to see if that helps. Go to the Media Sets window, highlight the media set and click "Remove." Then click "Locate" and navigate to the media set's catalog.
